Mindfulness

What is mindfulness?

Professor Jon Kabat- Zinn describes mindfulness as an awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally in the service of self-understanding. Mindfulness principles and practices are designed to offer you greater insight and awareness through observing our own mind. Regular practice can help us better manage stress, improve our focus, respond more proactively, and engage more fully in life.
